Only the most intriguing, innovative, and buzz-worthy 2020 products will make the TV50 cut.

The Voice 50, which debuted in The Voice at January’s Outdoor Retailer Snow Show, showcases the most interesting, hype-worthy, and exciting gear, even before testers can get their hands on it. For the January issue, nearly 400 products were narrowed down to the 50 most interesting, then ranked by a panel of expert gear testers and reviewers from SNEWS and BACKPACKER.

The result? TV50 is the industry’s exclusive first look at the products journalists desperately want to test, the items that will generate the most buzz with customers, and exactly what the gear world should be paying attention to in the next year.

Brand representatives have until April 15 to submit up to three products for consideration per brand. Products making their initial debut in the summer of 2019 (and will typically be available in the spring/summer of 2020) are eligible, but products that have already launched are not.
